Rick's BIO

Hometown: Roanoke, VA

Family:   Married to Debbie. I have a daughter, Brittan Hewitt, her husband Mike, and children Jewel and Levi. Our son Adam, his wife Danielle, and their son Wyatt.

Education: Associate Degree in Business Management from Virginia Western Community College.

Background: I worked from 1975-2009 with the Roanoke City Fire/EMS Department. Retired as a Battalion Chief. Owner of the Iron Sports Custom Cycles, Inc.

My passion at Orchard Hills: My passion is to give back some of what has been given to me through Christ. To love in a way that others would know whose I am.

Something not many people know about me: I once broke my nose para-gliding.

Favorite illustration of a biblical truth: Ephesians 6:10-12: Be strong with the Lord’s mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all the strategies and tricks of the devil. For we are not fighting people made of flesh and blood..
